war-torn Chechnya. In particular it seeks to highlight the situation
with disabled children, children with serious illnesses, and children
of large families without a parent who generates income.

We would like to establish contact with those who would like to help
these children: to send medication, help them get education, send them
warm winter clothing.

The exhibition will include photographs of these children, their
stories, and contact information.

We would much appreciate it if you could invite your friends.
